Christians Buy Chicken for God

It’s a greasy piece of fried chicken breast and a side of waffle fries. For some, it’s just a fattening meal from Chick-fil-a, but on August 1st, 2012,  people saw it as a ticket to heaven…or something.

Thousands of people in the country went to Chick-fil-a to prove their faith in God, the bible, and traditional values. If you don’t know, the company is known for being focused on the family and they give their money towards anti-gay foundations. At first I thought the company started it themselves and they were giving away free food. Nope. People just decided to gather up and buy some chicken in the name of traditional marriage.

Congratulations, you’re a bigot!

I’m not very religious but sometimes I admire those who are. It’s awesome to believe in a higher power and have faith. That being said, God doesn’t give a shit if you bought a chicken sandwich. If you want to be a good Christian, put that hateful energy towards something positive. Donate to charity or help out at the animal shelter.

It does give me a glimmer of hope for humanity that there were protestors. At least there are some people who are standing up for the good things in the world, like love and equality. If there is a God, he (or she) would be smiling down on those people and laughing at the ones with the waffle fries.

And to those who did buy Chick-fil-a on this day, I hope your piece had one of those gross, fatty things in it.

My personal, first hand experience with Chic-Fil-A is that when the chips are down and you need financial support for school drives, mission trips, transitional housing and sporting events, just to name a few, they are their. Why is it that if someone doesnt believe in liberal values they get called names and accused of not being Christian. Disagreement does not equal HATE, it just means we dont agree. You can have your beliefs, and I can have mine. In the end we will all find out the truth. I would say that in order to understand true Christianity you must have a relationship with Christ, which is more than an opinion.

I can’t remember when the last time was I saw a bunch of Christians at a food bank standing in line to feed the poor. These are the same Christian Conservatives howling about how fat people raise their insurance rates. People are born gay. They’re not born bigots. And for all those Christians standing in line to defend “traditional values”, they should know that those anti-gay groups Chick-Fellatio donated millions to…. are listed as hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center. You don’t get on that list by following the teachings of Christ.
